A Blog for Press-ing Matters Only

84 Jalan Tangsi. I have started a new blog to let Netizens know of what the National Press Club has been up to and what it's planning to do. Also my take on matters with regards to journalism, the state of our Press, its relationship with the government, the people, and everything else.

The birth of the new blog's timed with the World Press Freedom Day tomorrow. The National Press Club and the National Union of Journalists are planning an event together in conjunction with this day soon. A discourse on Press Freedom, involving this side of politics with the other side.

I'll be posting the details, here, in the next couple of days.

BLOGGERS PLEASE DON'T SQUABBLE

Fellow bloggers please don't ever squabble
Wasting time bursting each other's bubbles
Let us not be distracted from the real targets
And simply waste all our valuable blogging bullets

Hope this blog will put out news that papers ignore.
We will see.....
Malaysiakini besides RPK are the two blogs that allow readers and think.
Will this blog be fair and just...with love for Malaysians or is an objective for selfish needs and wants?
Put out the questions and answers in your Press blog that one cannot read in papers.
We have enough so call good news from papers!
You have so much energy.
Make sure you do not burn the candle at both ends.

Lu canggih Rocky! Tahniah, tahniah dan tahniah lagi ....
Cakap pasal blog, pastinya persoalan politik dan media tidak dapat dielakkan seperti cerita KJ lawan Mukhriz dan Sakmongkol belasah Big Dog!
Dunia politik Umno adalah menarik dan kotor sama seperti politik di mana2 pun.
Bunuh membunuh, tikam menikam dan hasad dengki adalah perkara biasa dikalangan ahli politik dan mereka yang bermain politik.
Masuk pasir dalam periok nasi orang adalah juga perkara biasa dalam politik dan alam pekerjaan. Balasan di dunia dan akhirat tetap menanti mereka.
Persoalan Khairy J/Rashid Yusof dan Mukhriz M/Zakhir Big Dog termasuk Sakmongkol dan Voice adalah perkara biasa dalam kancah politik Umno dulu, kini dan selamanya.
KJ ketika Dolah Badawi PM adalah de facto Bos sehinggalah BN kalah teruk PRU Mac 2008. Mukhriz adalah anak mantan PM Mahathir yang merupakan antara punca tersungkur Dolah. Ini adalah berdasarkan perbalahan pertandingan Ketua Pemuda Umno yang dimenangi KJ.
Kalau dilihat komentar dalam pelbagai blog, Rashid adalah perancang utama politik KJ, manakala Zakhir pelobi kuat Mukhriz.
Rashid bekerja untuk KJ yang dibenci dan tidak disenangi kepimpinan Umno kini yang diterajui Najib dan Muhyiddin kerana rekod lampau KJ sendiri. Pastinya Rashid sedia maklum stigma KJ ini.
Manakala, Mukhriz mungkin tidak punya masalah dengan Najib dan Muhyidin kerana kuasa atau peranan Mahathir.
Rashid cuba menjadi professional tetapi terperangkap sehingga tidak dapat lari dari dilabel sebagai perancang utama KJ yang amat dibenci oleh majoriti Umno.
Malangnya dalam usaha beliau untuk menyertai Muhyidin telah di ‘sabotaj’ oleh Zakhir dan sekali lagi Rashid sudah pasti dapat merasakan kesan dan kemungkinan yang perlu dihadapinya.
Adalah malang bagi sesiapa jua yang terbabit dengan KJ ini kerana kerakusan menantu Badawi ini amat tidak disenangi oleh kepimpinan sekarang khasnya Najib kerana pengalaman perit yang dilalui sebelum ini sehingga BN/Umno kini berdepan dengan perjuangan hidup mati dalam PRU akan datang.
Bagi Rashid, perjuangan samada mahu bersama KJ atau tidak adalah terpulang pada beliau sendiri kerana nasi sudah menjadi bubur ataupun perjuangan belum lagi selesai untuk memartabatkan KJ.
Pastinya ia pengalaman yang amat pahit dan mungkin berbaloi dapat bekerja dengan de facto Bos.
Bagi Zakhir pula, beliau merasakan Umno perlu diselamatkan dari penyakit KJ dan satu kemenangan moral bagi Mukhriz buat seketika dalam mainan politik mereka.
Manakala, Sakmongkol adalah penyokong KJ dan Rashid sementara A Voice pula disebelah Mukhriz dan Big Dog.

Rocky,

1. I believe bloggers can really make a huge difference in shaping public's opinion.

2. Controversial issues such as the Labu airport, IJN, Sime Darby scandals are just some of the example of how blog can be useful to everyday people like you and me.

3. I would love to see more bloggers urging/scrutinizing the government on daily events/issues that directly affect the people.

4. One example is the high price of chicken. I really hope some bloggers out there can start a crusade to persuade the government to take a tough stand on the price of chicken issue.

5. Enough of political talks. We are all fed-up with it.

anon@10:37am,

Waah. Anonymous belasah like that berani-lah.

Sure got your info from either Pakatan supporters, or Kalimullah/KJ's machais.

Simply want to accuse. If you were Rocky, I think you will want to be a prostitute. Becos, you think if you so influential like Rocky, you sure want to jual yourself.

Sorry, beb....

You sure don't berani to say that to Rocky! Tau takut!!!

Bro, semua orang sudah tahu lu punya ceritalah...cukuplah. Just collect your $$$ from UMNO and Mahathir boys and shutuplah. Your game is up...semua orang kampung dah tahu. Sebelum Mac 8, bodek Anwar, selepas itu bertukar pulak. Now, you are a mercenary writer, a gun for hire. You like to label others as Singapore operative...but you also run down this country in Singapore paper. WTF lah? Anyway, it is a free country...
